This looks like funn. I want to try one of these.

R/B:

It looks weird, but it probably mostly resembles the sprites from today. 8/10

Y:

Okay, wtf is this? It's like it was dipped into blue dye and is trying to keep it's hat on. 3/10

G/S/C

Gold, I have no idea whats happening with your tentacles. It's swollen or something. Same with Silver. Crystal is probably the one I like the most. 4/10, 4/10, 7/10.

R/S/E/FR/LG:

All really similar. I'm currently liking the animation on the Emerald sprite. I have no idea what's up with the FR/LG sprite though. It seems as if it's chaffing. 8/10, 9/10.

D/P/Pt:

Eh, not too fond of these sprites. What annoys me the post about the Plat sprite is that it's only the second half of the D/P sprite. 5/10, 5/10.

HG/SS:

I love this sprite. It shows simplicity and lots of tentacles. It's like you found one and it's only starting to become enraged. 9/10.

B/W:

Pretty much the D/P sprite only reversed, which I think is a good thing. It was meant to be reversed. I have no idea what's up with it's tentacles though. 7/10

That's Tentacruel from me.

FRLG Tentacruel looks like my mom when she's angry, so when I catch one in those games, I end up naming it Mom.

Imma do Arcanine aswell!

Red/Blue:



I love this sprite! The pose is, IMO, really good for Arcanine. I don't have bad to say about it! 10/10!

Yellow:



No! Just, no. What happened Arcanine? I hate the pose! 3/10.

Red(Jap)/Green:



Skinny front legs and fat back legs? What on earth were Game Freak/Whoever thinking? 0/10.

Gold:



Not bad! However, the pose sucks! The colours are nice though! 7/10.

Silver:



Excellent! Just marvellous! I love this one! 10/10.

Crystal:



I'm glad they re-used his Silver sprite for his Crystal animation! 9/10.

R/S/E/LG/FR:



Not the best sprite, but I like it! The colours are great! 7/10.



I love the animation! It make's it look like Arcanine is running, which would correspond to him being called the fastest Pokémon in one of his Pokédex entries! 8/10.

D/P/Pt:



I dislike the pose, and the colours, so this one just didn't get it for me! 4/10.

HG/SS:



What a massive improvment! The pose is awesome, the colours are great and the weight of his body/body parts is just right! 10/10.

B/W:



Ok, this sucks! The pose doesn't work, the colours are ok, but the face looks weird! 6/10.

So, as you can see, Arcanine has had many sprites, some great, some terrible! However, he is still an epic Pokémon!

We literally just discussed Arcanine a page or two ago. I have no comment at the risk of sounding redundant.

Red/Green


It's looking at its wings wondering why it's diseased. However, this sprites is so creepy looking that I love it.

Red/Blue

Personally, RG did Moltres better. This one doesn't even look like it has fire anywhere on its body.

Yellow

It looks pissed, lmao. But at least the flames on its wings and head are clear.

Gold

Basic pose, nothing special. Although we seems to have switched to wings fully engulfed in flames. Looks cool, imo.

Silver

This is my favorite sprite for Moltres. I love the pose. Looks very majestic.

Crystal

Why did they use the Gold sprite? :(

Ruby/Sapphire

The eye position makes it look bad...oh, and we're at partial flames agai-- WHAT IS THAT GIANT HUMP ON ITS BACK

Emerald

It shrinks, it pops back up. It shrinks, it pops back up. That's just great.

FireRed/LeafGreen

At least it's looking at me, unlike the RS Moltres.

Diamond/Pearl/Platinum

Decent pose, I like it. It looks like it's descending down into the battle.

HeartGold/SoulSilver

I like this one better than DPPt's, actually. Looks like it's a more epic entry into the battlefield.

Black/White

Same as DPPt, with a few minor changes, like the feet. Not much to say.

I always liked comparing Moltres' sprites because just look how much it changed from generation to generation... but then again, it looked ridiculous in Red/Blue, so of course that meant for a big change. But still.

Also, am I crazy for preferring the look of its fire in G/S/C over how it looks currently? I don't know why, it's very fluffy looking. XD

From R/S/E to B/W, this is the worst sprite update in history. The R/S/E Sceptile is my favourite. D/P/Pt/HG/SS doesn't appeal to me because I don't like the pose. B/W, what happened here?
Oh my gosh! D: what happened to my poor baby in Black and White? It makes me want to cry ;~; it looks anorexic!

Hey. For a moment I thought it was a different pokemon. This is one of the major sprite changes (and I gotta say it's pretty good, too).
It actually looks like a rodent. My heart cracked a little when I said that.

They were pretty perfect in HG/SS. I probably don't like the Swampert one because of the palette choice.
Again with the anorexia? But this time with Swampert.... (thinking about blaziken)



not too bad from black and white, the colours are a little lighter than usual but its all good.

The main thing is that the proportions on a lot of new Hoenn Pokémon sprites are much closer to Sugimori's original artwork than previous sprites of them. This is especially noticable in Sceptile's sprite.

You can make the argument that it's down to a lot of the sprites being traced off Suigimori's official art of the Pokémon, but it's not like art tracing hasn't been a key method in producing Pokémon sprites (and video game sprites in general) since the beginning. It appears to be another stylistic change they're going for in the 5th Gen sprite style.

I love this sprite! However not as much as the Gold one for one reason only. The sprite is too dark. However I love how it blows you a kiss. It looks adorable.

I love Chansey with the dark pink body! It just seems a little too whitish then pink in its newer sprites. I guess it could be because they want it to look more egg like.

Gold, I have no idea whats happening with your tentacles. It's swollen or something. Same with Silver. Crystal is probably the one I like the most. 4/10, 4/10, 7/10.
I absolutely love the Gold sprite. It's been my favorite sprite for Tentacruel ever since I first saw it. It looks more to me like it's going to whip you with its tentacle then it being overly swollen. Sounds weird I know.

The Red/Green and Silver sprites are my favorites for Moltres. I kind of wish they stuck with keeping the wings all flame like they did for Silver. I think it looks a little more impressive that way.

Let's do Rayquaza, just so we can show that it IS epic.

R/S/FR/LG:
What the hell is with its mouth? Has it been eating blue candy?

Emerald:
Oh god. Horrible Emerald animations, and no fixed mouth >:(

DP/Pt/HG/SS:
It looks happy. Rayquaza should look like this:

BW:
I woulda preferred it flying around like mad. Although, it's actually in its Sugimori pose. Maybe somebody pixel-overed it?

Yes, it's been common practice for brand-new Pokémon sprites (and big jobs like redrawing nearly every Hoenn Pokémon for BW) for a long time, and examples date back to Red & Green.

Honestly, I don't see what's so bad about Sceptile and Arcanine's B/W sprites. Most Pokemon were color-corrected to match their Sugimori art, so you guys must not like what they're really supposed look like then.

I love Arcanine's B/W sprite, it looks majestic, and it's finally colored correctly.

I remember my first time seeing Lance's Dragonair in my Red Version, and I thought, "Isn't Dragonair supposed to be mostly blue (or at least not so white like that)?"

It's partly down to Dragonair's twisting body we see a lot of it's white belly in the sprite.

The other problem is that the aritsts were kinda stuck for how to render it in only 4 colours and the shading style of RGB. Make the blues too light and they start to blend in with the seperation of the white on the belly and make it less accurate to the original colours, while if it's the blues are much darker like in here it can be hard to distinguish areas of the face without giving it a very large white highlight.

Shellder next!

R/B:The shell doesn't look curved on the sides like it should, and it's face looks more like a black Psyduck sticking it's bill out of a shell.

Y: The best of the Gen.I sprites. The shell is correct, as is the eyes, but the only problem is, the tongue seems a little bigger than normal, if you scale it with the rest of the sprite.

R/G:The worst sprite Shellder has IMO. Exact same as the R/B, but it seems completely symmetrical, which is a definitate negative. The tongue seems hardly like a tongue at all and it's eyes lack their usual size.

G:A very good sprite indeed. The eyes and tongue seem right, thought the tongue could be a little less thick, and the shell once again lacks it's usual curves. The colors are pretty dead on.

S: Same as G, but now the tongue seems a lot be the right size. The only problems here are the curves and the angle Shellder is facing. Not bad, but not on my favorites.

C:I love the new colors for this sprite. Sadly, that's the only real improvement here. I'm not too thrilled with animation as it's just it blinking and moving it's tongue. Compared to other C animations, this one doesn't rank good.

R/S: This is definately what I wanted a Shellder sprite to look like. Perfect colors. Curved shell. Tongue and eyes of the right size. Nothing bad here.

Fr/Lg:Everything like the R/S sprite, but now it's facing towards the player, which I like. The colors even seem to be a little bit better.

E:I don't think Shellder's animation should of been it closing it's shell and just moving back and forth. Seems very unrealistic, especially it squishing it's face. But it is better than the C animation.

D/P/Pt/B/W:Not one of my favorites. The top of the shell doesn't seem arched enough, and the tongue seems thicker as it goes down, not to mention it's face looks a bit sideways.

Hg/Ss:A pretty good sprite. I just think it's colors seem a little brighter than it should be, but the sizing is good, but I think the shell could be a little more curved.

And while we're at it, let's do Cloyster!


R/B:Mistakes such as the shell being horizontal and the missing head horn certainly don't help make this a good sprite, but for Gen.I sprites, I have to say, it has great colors. So it's a bit bad due to it's mistakes, but good for it's colors.

Y:A very good angle, having Cloyster float in the air, looking down on it's opponent. Everything seems accurate, down to it's head horn. One of Cloyster's better sprites indeed,

R/G:Personally, I find this to be Cloyster;s worst sprite. First off, the face is just a mess. It's supposed to be an orb-like face, but it looks more like a squished one. The shell semms bigger than normal, maybe due to it's abnormal head. Though it has the same colors os R/B, the colors don't seem to come off as well.

G:It's face seems more cartoonish than normal, with it's huge eyes and mouth. The colors are good, but they end up blending in too much with all the shell layers. Coulf of been better.

S:Though we still have the large eyes and mouth, the colors seem to be put togetehr a lot better. The angle is very good too.

C:The animation is just the shell moving, not even doing a complete open and close, and it moves it's eyes? Plus, the colors seem to of gotten worse than before.

R/S:Wonderful colors! And the angle is great too. I just don't like how bg it's eyes were made.

Fr/Lg: Now this is how I'd want all the sprites to be like. A good angle, with exceptional colors, and msot of all, the right sized eyes and mouth. Just beautiful.

D/P/Pt/B/W:For some reason, Cloyster's head was changed from black to purple (Jynx incident maybe?). I think Cloyster looked better with a blalck head, but hey, that's my opinion. The angle is good, with it looking down at the opponent. I just don't thnink it should of been angled so much in the front. It looked better a bit on the side. The colors are O.k.

Hg/Ss: The colors seem brighter than usual. And why does the left side of Cloyster's shell seem closer to it than the right? Everything else seems alright.

It should be noted that Cloyster's BW sprite has a number of fixes and tweaks to lines and body parts compared to the DP sprite.

These aren't 3D.

By definition a sprite cannot be 3D.

Mankey tiem!

Red/Blue:


Aww! Look at Mankey with its jacked up arms and legs~ Lol, its arms almost look boneless don't they? xD And its tail is smaller than usual... But hey, it's the first Pokemon game. ALL the Pokemon sprites were f-ed up.

Yellow:


Wow, such an improvement from the Red and Blue sprite. But most Yellow sprites were huge improvements from the R/B ones, right? This is a pretty alright sprite (lolrhyme). :3


Red/Green:


NOOOOOOO!! What happened?! D: Back to f-ed up arms I see. Lol, they look like they're being held up by strings don't they? XD And are those EARS on its head? Wow, they sure do look weird. I mean, really, this guy's looking like he has some straight up issues. O_o

But at least it's front sprite's arms are not as bad as its back sprite's arms:

BWAHAHAHA!! If you don't think its right arm looks just absolutely HILARIOUS, then I don't know what is. XD

Gold/Silver/Crystal:


Like pretty much every other G/S/C sprites, the Silver and Crystal ones are almost exactly the same (minus the animation of course :x). The Gold one is definitely the better of the 3, since I like its kicking pose better than its "rampaging" pose.
These sprites are alright, but definitely not OMG good. >.>

Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald:


Nonononono....nonono....no. I never liked the GBA sprites for any Pokemon. And these aren't any better. I can't say much about these sprites except that its left arm (our left) looks... kinda weird. ._.

FireRed/LeafGreen:


Y'know, for a GBA sprite, it's pretty good. :D It's not extremely messed up like the original R/G sprite, so it's alright with me. :3

Diamond/Pearl/Platinum:

Oooh, lookylooky~ Someone's trying to look fancy all of a sudden. ;B
This sprite is an EXTREME step forward for the Mankey sprite's, IMO. It's not the best of all of 'em, but hey, I like it. <3

HeartGold/SoulSilver:

YEEEESS, YEEEEESS. BEST Mankey sprite, EVER.
The pose is perfect, the face is perfect, the coloring is perfect... EVERYTHANG~
I don't think any Mankey sprite will ever beat this one in terms of PERFECTSHUN.

Black/White:

Nooo! Mankey, why? D: I was lovin' that HG/SS sprite, but they just HAD to change it, right? T_T It's not HORRIBLE, but definitely can't beat the HG/SS sprite. Hmm... I wonder how it's animated...


Well there's Mankey, fools~
I just can't forget that R/G back sprite, I swear. XD

Hypothesis: I don't see us getting any new battle sprites for a few Generations to come. GameFreak kindly gave us animated sprites this Gen and it probably took a lot of work. I can see them carnying on these same sprites for Gen 6, 7 etc as it'll take too much work to again animate the ones that already exist. That is to say if animated battle sprites will continue, and I doubt that they'll stop as it's a bug change in the games and it should stay. Then again, there was the Follow Me system xD
